Just found the same problem on my father in laws mower (24 hp briggs) I took the engine off of the mower, drained oil, turned on its side and removed lower case. There was the missing pushrod wraped around the camshaft gear. no clue on how in the hell it did that! It also ended up breaking the govenor (quick look) will look for more damage tomorrow.

I own a 1968 Imperial 440 V8. The intake valve push rod of the #1 cylinder bent and was causing knocking noise. I replaced it and the motor ran fine. The #1 cylinder started missing. Again it was a bent...


bent push rods come from improper movement of the rocker and valve
This can be from an incorrect length push rod-- some v8 engines run different lengths for inlet and exhaust
from rocker arm jamming on the shaft or rocker ball
hydraulic cam follower pumping up and jamming the valve spring to a solid block
bent valve stem above the valve guide
valve spring Colette moved or misplaced incorrect rocker for that valve-- some engines run different length rockers for inlet and exhaust
what to do-- if this engine was running all right for some time then the rocker can be omitted. if the problem has been occurring since the cold weather the the oil may be too thick and not allowing the follower to leak down properly
check the follower or replace it , change to a lighter viscosity oil for the duration of the cold weather
unless you have had a recent head change or other mechanical work done the problem will be in those areas.

On any pushrod engine you have to make sure that the timing is correct or nearly correct when first firing it up, if you had the cam in the wrong position the pushrod had no place to go when the cam lobe came around=bend push rod.

Bent push rods are a function of the valve guide coming loose in the head. The valve binds and you end up with a bent pushrod. Fix: Replace head. $94.00

24 hp engine. one bent push rod, second rod missing lost some power, no other problems


This happened to me,the engine sat for some time and the valves were varnished with stale fuel,they stuck in the guides.This bent the push rod and it was only running on one cylinder.The missing push rod worked its way into the crankcase through an oil passage . I took the engine sump of and found the push-rod. I cleaned removed the head,cleaned the valves and guides replaced push rods and gasket and it ran fine after that.I use fuel stabilizer now,it keeps the varnish from forming.
